The Mountains

“We’re all drawn to different places, and I’ve always been mountain girl. I think of them all day, and sometimes ask myself if it’s a little less dangerous and perhaps more sustainable to find absolute ecstatic bliss by falling madly in love with landscapes rather than people as it’s also immensely grounding in every sense of the word? I want to explore them, sleep inside the heat and cold of them, experience all their seasons, share their crooked, winding, wild paths, and grow with them alongside me. They’ve always felt like gorgeous, undeniable mystery and home all at once. The mountains.”
